The Potting Shed Accommodation

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We booked this stay for two nights wanting a self catering unit for our family. The owners were very welcoming and when we arrived we were given directions to the Whale Rock Estate where the self catering unit was based. This estate was very pretty and one row back from the beach and rather large waves!
Needless to say the view was fantastic!
Our children were very excited to go in the pool which is shared with other units on the estate, it was freezing with no loungers to relax around the pool which was a bit of a shame.
This place is a good base for exploring the area, we felt that you would need to get a car into Hermanus centre due to the location of the Whale Rock Estate, especially at night.
The estate has security and is surrounded by a high fence etc...
The unit is well equipped, clean and comfortable for a family stay.

Room Tip: this estate had access to a squash court, and the pool was very cold and hence not great for small c...

This is a friendly and comfortable B&B at a reasonable price. I had stayed here two years ago on a paragliding tour and sought it out again for lodging with my wife. Rooms are neat and tastefully decorated, the breakfast copious, and the service impeccable including hints for restaurants and visits in the area. Highest recommendation.

My husband and I spent the weekend at the Potting Shed Guesthouse. Despite the wet and windy weather we had a lovely stay. We stayed in the self catering Studio apartment. The apartment is neat and clean and so cosy, perfect for a couples weekend away. The bath is amazing. The guesthouse is close to the main road and the cliffpaths.The owners are warm and friendly and make you feel at home immediately. I would give the Studio apartment a 4 Star rating. WIll definately return for another stay.

Room Tip: The Studio apartment is a must for couples, as it is private and cosy with a lovely sundeck

Unfortunately we only booked one night in Hermanus. The city is for sure worth it to stay two nights.

We had a great tume a The Potting Shed. The rooms are good and clean. The bathrooms are a little small but they are expanding them now. They are also providing a Wifi-connection soon. But also with these newcoming facilities we had a great time!

We had one person that celebrated his birthday there. Because of this they decorated his room. Very nice!!

Breakfast was super!! We even had pancakes.

Visit the wine farm called Creation. It is +- 25 min away from this accommodation but absolutely worth it!
